Late News: Add Enemies on Facebook with App, Skype Optimised for New iPad, Apple Replacing Google on iOS with Baidu in China?

Part of the experience many a Facebooker enjoys is the number of friend requests we take great delight in confirming - and denying. The problem is, many of those requests we end up rejecting are due to 'enemies' looking us up, and the last thing users wish to do is share their nearest and dearest personal data with these Facebook foes. However, what if we could turn such data into 'enemies'?

Following the new iPad with its impressive high resolution display hitting the market, the developers have revamped their apps in iTunes in order to accommodate the new device. Now, it is Skype's turn to show off a 3.8 version of its app specially designed to get the most out of the new iPad's capabilities.

Whilst over the past few years technology has advanced at quite the supersonic rate, it appears that many of its users are feeling somewhat nostalgic - and are instead looking to go back in time.

According to SinaTech, Apple plans to integrate the search function from Chinese web services giant Baidu into iOS. The news site, quoting "knowledgeable sources," suggests that Apple will release the new feature sometime next month. The sources say that, so far, an agreement has been signed and everything is going according to plan.

The debate over deploying 4G LTE to the UK, presided over by Ofcom, rumbles on. This all started earlier in March, when Ofcom gave the go-ahead to Everything Everywhere (EE) to make a start on its 4G roll out at the end of this year. That green light was subject to objections from other parties, however, and indeed both Vodafone and O2 slated Ofcom for even considering the plan.
